Participatory budgeting

36th Ward Participatory Budgeting Results Are In!

The following Hermosa participatory budgeting projects will get funded in the 36th Ward! Thank you to Jorge Felix for primarily leading HNA's efforts in the 36th ward. These infrastructure improvements will help aid in a hopeful reduction of accidents on Kostner Avenue as well as guiding heavy- and medium duty trucks from nearby industrial zones safely to arterial roads without impacting residential streets. Additionally, some $550,000 has been earmarked by voters to go to fixing streets throughout the ward, some of which will likely be located in Hermosa. 

This includes:

  • Roundabout at Kilbourn and Dickens
  • Flashing beacon stop signs along Kostner between Courtland and Fullerton
  • A cul-de-sac at Kilbourn and Kolmar

31st Ward Participatory Budgeting Results Are In!

31st Ward Participatory Budgeting (PB) cycle 2 is in the books. With 230 votes the following items won. Pigeon screening along viaducts on Kenton, and seed money for a dog park at Ken-Well Park were among the projects that won in Hermosa. There could also be road- and street light- projects located within the community, too.
